“Mbappé wants to play for Real Madrid. In a normal context, you would think that he would sign this summer, but now, due to the coronavirus emergency, no-one can pay €300 million. Kylian wants to be with his idol Zidane and he will become the best 9 in the world.”

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has long spoken highly of the 21-year-old French forward, who won the World Cup with France in 2018. The player is contracted to PSG until 2022 and the Parisian’s have been looking to offer him a new contract in order to tie him to the club and lower the chances of him leaving.

In that time, he has scored 30 goals and provided 17 assists, remaining one of the most exciting young players in the world.
